Should definitely be on your schedule to visit, but you really need more time as there is SO much to see. Worth paying to get inside before it is "open" to the public.
An historic tour
, Jul 2019
The tour through the Vatican was amazing. The Sistine Chapel was inspiring, and our guide Marco shared details that became apparent when we were inside. Our guide made all the difference as his commentary really shed light on the history of all we saw. And we saw a great deal. After quickly visiting the Sistine Chapel we circled back to view the grounds more thoroughly. Marco provides rich details of the relationship between Michelangelo and Raphael, and then we saw the artwork. The tour ends in Saint Peter's basilica. Fantastic tour, delivered by a great guide.
Fantastic guide

What a memorable experience. It was record heat and crowds but the 7:30 start time and skip the line was definitely worth it. It didn’t feel that crowded and our guide made it a special experience.
Nice to beat the massive crowds

The early morning start was nice to beat the massive crowds to see the Sistine Chapel. When we passed back through the chapel about an hour later it was a significantly more crowded. Our tour guide was very informative although I never caught her name.
Fantastic Vatican Tour Guide

Marco was a fantastic tour guide through the Vatican, Sistine Chapel and Basilica. He was very knowledgeable sharing wonderful insights about the art. His attention to detail on the logistics combined with his knowledge was a winning combination. The one-hour early entrance made the experience much more enjoyable and was very worthwhile. Thank you!
Good tour but a bit rushed at certain exhibits

The tour felt a bit rushed at times and we couldn't really stop at any given attraction or gift shop. It was especially hot when we went so stopping for water would have been very nice.
Great tour, best guide

Our tour guide Raf was incredible. She was so enthusiastic and so knowledgeable. She ensured that we got to do and see everything before most crowds. If you go on this tour try and go with RAF as a guide. Grazie mille!
Vatican and Sistine Chapel

Beautiful place but too many tourists! 35,000 people a day. We were packed in. My friend struggled with claustrophobia and walking so much
Papa Franco is the best!

My wife and I greatly enjoyed this tour. The Vatican Museums are enormous and a good guide really points out the highlights. Franco is an experienced guide with a plan. He got us into the Sistine Chapel before the crushing crowd. I can not say enough positive things about this guide!
Guide was excellent!

Knowledgeable, kept calm through very crowded circumstances. I visited 20 years ago and it is now so extremely busy. The guide was very helpful!
